I'm just as surprised as you are!

“Oh my gosh!” Maggie shrieked happily. She didn’t realize quite how loud she was being, mostly because she didn’t even realize that she had said that out loud. To be sure, she repeated. “Oh my gosh! That’s too funny!” she went on. “Yes, Ika Blackburn!” How crazy was that?! It had to be super tiny odds of this. Sure, families sometimes went to the same schools, but this was an international school, with students from all over the world. The fact that his mom knew Aunt Ika meant…

“Maybe your mom knows my mom!” Maggie cheered, clapping her hands with excitement. That would have been wild! Other than Aunt Ika, she had never met anyone from Mama’s past, and in fact, she had only even gotten to know Ika by another pure coincidence a few years ago. “My mom’s name is Alexis Booth. I guess she would’ve had a different last name when she was a kid, but you should ask your mom if she knows her! What’s your mom’s name?”

The Cetus couldn’t help but feel a great rush of excitement at this prospect. She had always been curious about Mama’s upbringing, but Mama would never talk about it. Maybe this was Maggie’s chance to unlock something about her past!
